Definitely a book that was written a few years ago, but it's also very clear and concise. Each of crops is dealt with in full over 2 or 3 pages with handy illustrations. Lots of good advice for beginners like myself and not filled with unexplained jargon.
An excellent book, incredibly helpful with clear illustrations advice and recommendations of variety. Would like some of the rarities that are no longer rarities to be updated into the main bulk such as chilis and the herbs to receive as much detail as the vegetables.
